one selected committee that failed. harry ride could bring this -- harry reid could bring this up and could have been working on it from day one, they have done the dog and pony show, with political theater of joint chiefs coming and everyone saying oh, this is terrible, this is terrible, and then they go on vacation, bottom line, they have been elected to do a job, and solve the problems, what do they do? they go on vacation. they should have immediately been brought back. with all of the stuff going on with north africa, and syria and afghanistan, and other hot areas, what are they focused on? who are they going do layoff? how are they going to be laid off? when about contractual obligations, and union obligations, is it payback after in terms of us paying fines. neil: who came up with it? you were there. the president said, it was really a republican creation, and republicans say it was the president's creation. i remember covering it at the time. i was not in the seams of it, as you were, but it was like for both sides a back up backbone. like if we can't agree, maybe these cu

to have to make some hard choices. neil: including the president. >> so when he says harry reid says this, chuck schumer says is, we don't have a spending problem, it is a revenue issue, we have to get more taxes. what you say? are they smoking something? >> we have a spending problem. >> i am just saying, why can't they be like an alcoholic? >> to your earlier point, everybody is talking around the edges right now. entitlements, 60% of our budget is captured. >> well, i was going to say, let's be clear. what we are actually looking at is $44 billion. 1% of the federal budget in fiscal year 2013. even with sequestration, we will spend more than 2013 we spend in 2012. we have a spending problem, absolutely. but we do not necessarily have a revenue problem in the sense that revenues are at or near all-time highs. what we do have is an inability to match things with our revenue. we should be spending something closer to what we were spending last year of the bill. >> i think it could quickly get the ball rolling. i just think that we have to get past the blame game. you know, it's sort

mcconnell behind, harry reid. you know all of the people. they come down, shake hands. a formal procedure. some of these guys have been there for the better part of all day. new york, they come in there. people get there at like 2:00 a.m. the morning before and wait. they just wait and wait and wait. some people linaria knowing when the president comes in they will get their shot with the president of the united states shaking hands. the cameras capture it all over the world. the same shot. what makes this extra no worthy today, dick durbin of illinois, the speaker of there with joe biden. there will be a number a pretty impressive folks in that audience. ted nugent, tony bennett, apple ceo tim cook. so few seats. talk about the cast of characters. who gets in there and how. >> well, you have to think of it as two different worlds. on the house floor, house members and senators and the total 535. they come over from the chamber. and there are members of the supreme court, the cabinet. those officials and the diplomatic corps are allowed on the house floor. above the house floor

including the president down to harry reid, nancy closely really also concur with. the math doesn't add up, if you can tax the rich at 100% it would not come close to covering our needs, this is a reallocation problem, this is a bad math problem and we can't sustain this and we want a government there is an argument to be made that they do want a bigger, better government, you will have to pay for it. you will have to pay a lot for people to provide, what you think of that? >> exactly. the path we're on right now is unsustainable. either we go the path europe has gone down with a statement economy and cons of unemployment, tons of people taxed to death, or the other path with a more economic freedom and people can decide what they want to do, government isn't taking care of you from cradle to grave and they make that hard choice because this is not sustainable. neil: could also be stating something america's might well come and be willing to pay a little bit more if they have a government that will do a little bit, presumably a lot more and might be okay with it but throwing it out ther

to push our issues forward are not there anymore. you have harry reid running the place. he can do what he wants, whenever he wants. his lieutenants, they run the place as well and they're extremely partisan. but bottom line is people need to understand they can pretty much do anything they want because they're in the majority party. the only tools republicans have are to slow things down, law for full -- allow for full and fair debate and an open vote. they file bills, move for closure. and then try to ram it through. that's now how we should legislate. especially now. >> neil: nothing seems to change. >> you're right. >> neil: he's going to keep ramming through executive orders and spending. republicans argue they're not going to allow it. >> listen, you're right. he says he wants to reach across the aisle. you have senators like susan colins and others who are hopeful we'll get things done and work in a bipartisan manner then if it does it go the administration's way, he says we'll do it through check executive order. we need to work together as americans and find consensus and

. thanks for joining us. >> if you a ask harry reid, americans don't believe in spending cuts. >> the american people are on our side. the american people don't believe in this austere things. >> my next guest says harry has it wrong and has the polls to prove it. says mounting debt is major concern for most americans. tell us about it, sir. the polls would say that harry has it all wrong, do they not? >> they do. and also when you were discussing the president, as you know hi is talking about gun control and talking about immigration but it is debt now, and the deficit, that are the number two item in several recent polls of public concern. so they have shifted their attention, maybe past the philosophy -- fiscal cliff debate got their attention but now they're worried about it. recent polls show if you give people a choice between spending cuts, including cutting services, or tax increases, they prefer spending cuts. so, harry reid has is wrong. >> we just put a full screen up there cutting services 49%. some people say that. increasing taxes, 80%. both equally, only 11. people are

very reasonable bill. they passed it. harry reid never even tack it up and the president didn't acknowledge it. but there are good ways to fix this problem without gutting our military. but we can't good back to where we were, where we're just adding all this spending back, along with the president's tax increases. >> you're saying basically the republicans should say, no, we're not going to do this, no more taxes? >> absolutely not. stewart. i'm not going to speak for the republicans anymore. but just speaking as a conservative, we have to get the president and the congress focused on, how can we cut spending and put ourself on a path to a balanced budget. if we don't start talking about a balanced budget and getting serious about it, you know what's going to happen and this movie will not end well. >> the congressional budget of office today protected the state of the economy. they said two things. number one, the deficit this year is going to come in lower trim dollars, the first time in the obama years. and they also said we're only goal going to great growth of 1.4%. they'r

, since harry reid wouldn't put one on the floor you. can't blame the republicans for this. democrats own two pieces of three that make government work. the republicans happen consistently passed budgets, attempted to put things before the president and before the senate. harry reid won't bring it up and the president has time to do is go out and blame republicans for what's wrong this. may happen. it will hurt a lot of people. about it doesn't have to. if the president would step up and be. >> what's up on the show tomorrow? we're going to talk about cyberhacking and it's affecting a lot of people. george bush, he gate code was hacked into. this is a serious issue for america. we have a lot more, but, by the way, sissy houston, whitney's mother will be on as well. >> from benghazi to the border, a new survey showing 40% of americans consider illegal immigration a major cause of unemployment. this is the white house and a group of senators push to legalize as many as 11 million illegal immigrants. bad timing? byron says, out of touch. >> there's a new report from rutgers university an

congressional republicans? three actors here. i got the senate and house and white house. frankly, harry reid by ducking responsibility he is getting absolved from everything. >> neil: good stuff. ford o'connell, thanks very much. it's enough to make democrats sick. the clock that has some of the draculas running from it, like a cross. >> clearly it's a political prop to message ideologically. [ male announcer ] how do you measure happiness? by the armful? by the barrelful? e carful? how about...by the bowlful? campbell's soups give you nutrition, energy, and can help you keep a healthy weight. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>. >> neil: like a cross to the vampire. it's democrats who are sick. they don't like seeing it at congressional hearings and republicans say it's a timely reminder of the debt we are amassing. john stossel says the clock should say and remind both parties what is really at stake. >> the president says sequester cuts are using a meat cleaver on the budget. if only that were true because i say, go. because it affects the younger people like we babyboomers

would sit down with harry reid and address our problems. the house acted twice. we shouldn't have to act a third time before the senate begins to do their work. >> good afternoon, we heard the president say last week that he would he was going to be forced, because of sequestration, to let criminals loose on the street if he didn't get another tax hike. today we hear discussions from the secretary of homeland security we're going to have have to sacrifice homeland security efforts if we don't get another tax hike. this is a false choice and the president has been engaging in a rhetoric of false choice for weeks. as the spaker just indicated, we in the house have acted. there's a smarter, better way to go about trying to achieve the reductions in spending so we can get it controlled over the spending. and in the house, we even included measures that the president has proposed in his own budget. but yet the president won't support even his own measures unless there's a tax increase. so the president really ought to stop campaigning and come back to the table and work with us. we care a

. >> what now? where does this go? >> it goes to the u.s. senate and i think that harry reid should take it up. most voters do not believe that members of congress, the executive branch officials or the vice president deserve to have any pay increases this year. so it's a common sense measure and saves $11 billion over ten years given our fiscal situation. >> a lot of people look at $11 million over ten years with budgets of 3.5 trillion. it's a spit in the ocean. i understand it's a start but you're about making a statement. that if you're not getting the job done, you shouldn't get paid more for it but nancy pelosi talks about the dignity of your work and that this is essentially undignified. what do you say? >> part of the reason we have to do this is in response to her speakership, frankly. when she was making comments about obamacare that you have to pass the bill to find out what's in it, americans thought that process was undignified. so we're trying to change the way congress is viewed, trying to put ourselves out there, willing to sacrifice to show the american people we don't want
